Davis, the watchmaker, was standing at the Post Office on Wednesday night last, awaiting the delivery of the Sydney mail, a local "artful dodger" eased him of his handkerchief, keys and penknife. We under. stand this is the first case of street pocket-picking which has bccurred in Goulburn, and naturally speaks for the progress of civilization amongst us.

A Goon WIsn.--An ecoentric banker was eyeing with suspicious vision a bill presented to him for discount. " Yon need not fear," said the palpitating customer; "one of the parties keeps his carriage.'

Miscellaneous Extracts. ELEPHANT KRAAL IN CEYLON. [Newspaper Article] — The Goulburn Herald and County of Argyle Advertiser — 15 December 1849

Miscellaneous Extracts. ELEPHANT KRAAL IN CEYLON. ONE hot morning in November, 18-, we set off from Kandy for the purpose of seeing that interest ing sight, an elephant kraal, which was expected to take place the next day, eighteen miles distant. Our resting place, however, was eight miles beyond ; and although in this country twenty six miles would be no 'great ride for a lady, yet in a tropical cli mate it was rather an undertaking. However, I must either have done so, or given up wnat I was most desirous to witness, as we could not secure any coolies, or palanquin bearers, at that time in Kandy, they being all engaged to carry down tents, &c., to the kraal, for the general and his party. The day was fortunately rather cloudy, and although the heat was very great, we had not the direct power of the sun to contend with. We did not reach Kornagalle till six in the evening, as we rested half way for some hours during the hottest part of the day. I was dreadfully tired, so was...

Select Poetry. THE SONG OF STEAM. [Newspaper Article] — The Goulburn Herald and County of Argyle Advertiser — 15 December 1849

THE SONG OF STEAM. Harness me down with your iron bands; Be sure of your curb and rein, For I scorn the power of your puny hands As the tempest scorns a chain. How I laughed, as I lay concealed from sight For many a countless hour, At the childish boast of human might, And the pride of human power. When I saw an army upon the land, A navy upon the seas, Creeping along, a snail-like band, Or waiting the wayward breeze; When I marked the peasant faintly reel With the toil which he daily bore, As he feebly turned at thie tartly wheel, Or tugged at the weary oar. When I measured the panting courser's speed, The flight of the carrier-dove, As they bore the law a king decreed, Or the lines of impatient love; I could not but think how the world would feel, As these were outstripped afar, When I should be bound to the rushing keel, Or chained to the flying car. Ha, ha, ha ! they found me at last; They invited me forth, at length, And I rushed to my throne with thunder blast, And laughed in ...

Sydney News. [Newspaper Article] — The Goulburn Herald and County of Argyle Advertiser — 15 December 1849

Sydney News. THE MANEROO MAILS.-The alteration of the postal arrangement in this district, con sequent upon the acceptance by the govern ment of the contract tendered by Mr. Rut ledge, will be most advantageous to the resi dents in the more remote parts of Maneroo, and especially to those of Panbula and Eden, in consequence of the establishment of a weekly mail. The weekly delivery has hi therto extended no further than Bombalo, .the nahil-b~igs being conveyed to the township from Cooma, by Mr. Joseph Laurie, under engagement to Mr. Andrew Badgery, the present contractor. There exists a general feeling throughout the district as to the policy of retaining Laurie's services, and Mr. R?utledge will not only consult the inclina tions of the residents, but will find it the most economical course by acceding to their wishes in this particular.-Laurie invariably employs first-rate cattle, and is punctual as clock-work in his arrivals; while his inti mate acquaintance with every mile of th...

FRAUDS ON TRADESMEN. [Newspaper Article] — The Goulburn Herald and County of Argyle Advertiser — 15 December 1849

FIIAUDS ON TRADESMEN. WTE received a letter last week from a highly respectable person residing in a neighbouring district, complaining of the present statd of the law regarding " bills of sale," and point ing out the many facilities that are afforded by these documents to defraud the honest tradesman of his goods. The letter is;too, personal for us 'to insert it entire, aid we think the end our correspondent has in view will be accomplished if we publish a state-: ment of his case, and accompany it by.such remarks as the subject may seem to require. It appears that some time since, a person, assuming the position of a gentleman, con tracted a debt with our correspondent, the liquidation of which was not for a nimiiment doubted, as the debtor had, to use the words of our informant, " as much furniture in his house as would pay ten times the amount." Matters passed on very smoothly until within the last six months, when a demand for pay ment was made, and many times repeated, but wit...

Colonial News. GOLD WASHING.-We are informed that two machines for the washing of gold are being constructed. One is intended to operate on the auriferous sand on the banks of the Onkaparinka, and the other for the Torreus.. If the speculation succeeds, these will-probably be the forerunners. of a.' dig ging' mania. We would. suggest, that a machine to purify the water of the latter stream might be likely to furnish the specu lator .with as much gold as that intendedfor the search of its muddy. bottom.-Adelaide Times.

THE RAILWAY. [Newspaper Article] — The Goulburn Herald and County of Argyle Advertiser — 15 December 1849

THE RAILWAY. Tais subject is of such vital importance to the colony, and particularly to the southern district and the town of Goulburn, that we cannot allow the late movement respecting it to pass by without again and again revert ing to it. We much fear that what has taken place has had a materially evil influence upon the Railway undertaking, which it will take some time to remove. The present and future shareholders should be very careful in their enquiries and observance of the acts of the Directors: they should, at the same time, be careful to avoid mere idle clamour. If the Directors, in the election of Mr. Cow per as President and Manager, with a salary of .£600, are blameless, as some say, the con fidence of the public will be restored by its appearing so through the discussion that is going on. If, on the other hand, they have done wrong, the greatest benefit will arise -from the general attention being drawn to the first wrong act. More care will be taken in future; and t...

Domestic Intelligence. [Newspaper Article] — The Goulburn Herald and County of Argyle Advertiser — 15 December 1849

-0 SETTLING DISPUTES WITH A BOTTLE.-A case was initiated at the Police Office yesterday, iu which John Owen appeared as complainant, and Owen Boyle as defendant. Owing to the absence of a material witness for the defence, Boyle prayed that the case might be postponed until Tuesday next, when the necessary evidence wotld be forthcoming. From what we have heard of the particulars of the case it appears that on Wednesday night last the complainant, who is head waiter at vlandelson's Hotel, requested the defendant, who keeps a shop in the neighbourhood, to walk out of one of the rooms of the hotel, the hour of his appearance there being an unseasonable one. Some alterca tion ensued which led the complainant to tell the defendant that if he did not leave the premises it, the twinkling of an eye he should be compelled to make him. This peremptory order Boyle did not relish, and snatching a bottle which stood on the chimney-piece, inflicted a blow ott the forehead of complainant which caus...

-0 TUESDAY, DECEMBER 11, 1849. BEFORE WV. H. HOVELL, ESQ., J.P. CATTLE STEALING. - Joseph Armstrong alias Pollard, a half-caste, was brought before the Bench under the following circumstances. It appeared that Mr. Martin Kellick of the Veteran's Flats, had lost some working bullocks about two years and a half ago, amongst which was a red one branded PY and J in addition to his own brand. The bullocks were subsequently recovered or accounted for with the exception of thlis one, which had never been seen nor heard of from that tiie until Sunday last. On that dlay, from infor mation received, a man named Davison, who re sides near Kellick's, and who well knew the bullock, proceeded to Touraog, and found some teams en camping. At the moment of his coming up, a man was unyoking the bullock which had been so long missing, and enquiring of him to whom the animal belonged, he pointed to the prisoner, who on being interrogated said that it was in his charge.
